Fonti now at five offers

We haven't heard much from Wayne (N.J.) Wayne Hills offensive tackle Chris Fonti over the past couple of months, but that doesn't mean the recruiting process has been moving at a slow pace for him.

In fact, just the opposite has been occurring. Things have picked up dramatically for the 6-foot-7, 305-pound tackle, as he has picked up four new offers in recent weeks.

"I've got offers from Louisville, East Carolina, Delaware and Florida International besides the Rutgers (offer)," Fonti said. "The Louisville (offer) kind of piqued my interest. That's about it. I really haven't looked into them, though. It was last week when I found out they offered me. This week I plan on looking into them more."

Louisville isn't the only school that has offered who has Fonti's attention these days. The Jersey prospect is still very much interested in the state's flagship program.

"I'm still talking to Rutgers," he continued. "I went down there for a weekend to tour the campus and do all that stuff. We went to the weight room and all that. Now I'm going to their camp so they can work with me a little more."

In fact, Fonti went on to say that Rutgers is "probably" his favorite at this point, but he wants to wait a while before he makes his decision.

It seems as though he's waiting on a few offers.

"I'd like to get offers from UNC, Pitt and Penn State. I'm thinking about going to the Penn State camp and the UNC camp, as well as the Rutgers camp."
